Main Window DUMBO: Candance [Exhibit has been extended]

Cadance - a fabric installation by Linda Schmidt at Main Window DUMBO, 1 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY

In Linda Schmidt's installation for Main Window, colorful fabric panels hang in layers. Her work recalls celebrations, marches, banners and fairs, while simultaneously functioning as an incubator for thought and contemplation. Inspired by makers, quilters and seamstresses with sewing and design skills that have been passed down through generations, Linda works intuitively, piecing together fabrics that are a combination of random thrift store finds, bargain bin remnants and high quality silks. The mix of these transparent and opaque materials interact with each other, creating space and capturing ambient light and air. The result is a geometric structure that facilitates beautiful color mixtures and lighting transitions. The unfinished and frayed edges lend a gestural and ephemeral quality to the piece.

Schmidt's installation is viewable 24/7 at 1 Main Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Free and open to the public.
